Abstract

Desmoid tumors are slow growing deep fibromatoses with aggressive infiltration of adjacent tissue but without any metastatic potential.We report on two female patients with desmoid tumor of the abdominal wall who underwent primary resection and proline mesh repair. Both patients had a history of an earlier abdominal surgery. Preoperative evaluation included abdominal ultrasound,and computed tomography. The histology in both cases revealed a desmoid tumor.Complete surgical resection and proline mesh repair is the first line management of this tumor entity.

اورام الدسمويد هي اورام بطيئة النمو مع ميل شديد نحو اختراق الانسجة المجاورة ولكنها لا تمتلك اية قوة انتشار.تم تسجيل حالتين من الاصابة بورم الدسمويد وهي لمريضتين سبق وان اجريت لهما عمليات فتح بطن(قيصرية)وكان الورم في كلتا الحالتين في جدار البطن عند الجرح القديم المندمل.اجريت فحوصات الامواج فوق الصوتية والمفراس ثم اجريت لهما عملية رفع الورم من جدار البطن مع رفع كامل للتليفات المصاحبة في الجرح السابق بغية منع الانتشار الموضعي للورم وبعدئذ رتقت الهوة المتخلفة في جدار البطن بشبكة من البرولين الصناعي.اثبثت الفحوصات النسيجية الاصابة بورم الدسمويد.

Abstract

It is clear that correct application of antibiotic prophylaxis can reduce the incidence of infection resulting from the bacterial inoculation in a variety of clinical situations; it cannot prevent all infections any more than it can eliminate all established infections. Optimum antibiotic prophylaxis depends on: rational selection of the drug(s), adequate concentrations of the drug in the tissues that are at risk, and attention to timing of administration. Moreover, the risk of infection in some situations does not outweigh the risks which attend the administration of even the safest antibiotic drug. The aim of this study was to compare between 2 prophylactic protocols in out patients undergoing oral surgical procedures. Thirty patients, selected from the attendants of oral surgery clinic in Al-Karamah Dental Center, were subjected to different oral surgical procedures under local anesthesia. These patients were given single dose antibiotic prophylaxis in 2 groups; 1st group were 15 patients given 1 million i.u. of procaine penicillin I.M. 30 minutes before oral surgery, 2nd group were 15 patients given 600mg clindamycin orally 1 hours before oral surgery. The maximum time for all procedures was 2 hours. There was no difference between procaine penicillin (1 million i.u.), and clindamycin (600mg), regimens concerning post operative infection in out patient’s oral surgical procedures.

Abstract

Aims: To assess the clinical effect of different flap design that used in periapical surgery and their
relation to untoward postoperative sequel. Materials and methods: Forty five patients were included
in the present study, they were divided randomly into three groups, each comprised of (15) patients. In
the first group, apicectomy was done using intrasulcular triangular (2–sided) flap. Whereas, in the
second group, a submarginal (Luebke–Ochsenbein) scalloped 2–sided flap was used. While in the third
group, a new experimental (straight mucogingival) 2–sided flap was tested. Postoperative healing was
evaluated clinically in regard to oedema, alteration of soft tissue colour, recession of marginal gingiva,
extent of scarring, and closure of the wound site. Assessment was done at 2, 7, 15 and 30 days
postoperative intervals. Results: Comparison among the three study groups was performed. Statistical
analysis revealed significant differences in the results of experimental flap over the other two types in
regard to oedema, colour and wound closure with the superiority of the former on the latter flaps. Both
experimental and Luebke–Ochsenbein flaps showed significant differences from intrasulcular incision
in their effect on gingival recession. In contrast, scarring was less evident in intrasulcular flap followed
by experimental flap while in Luebke–Ochsenbein incision, this complication was significant.
Conclusion: This study; however, revealed that the experimental flap allows for rapid and recession
free healing following periapical surgery. In addition, inflammatory changes persist for longer time in
the intrasulcular and submarginal (Luebke–Ochsenbein) incision than in experemintal incision. So it
was concluded that the new flap design could provide an alternative.

Abstract

Background: tuberculosis is an endemic disease in Yemen. Abdominal Tuberculosis (AT) is the most common extra pulmonary manifestation of the disease.The clinical picture can be non specific.Laparoscopy is the most accurate diagnostic method but has its limitation depending on presentation. The aim of this study was to present the common clinical manifestation and the
different type of Abdominal TB,the surgical procedure used,the morbidity and
mortality of the disease.
Patient and Methods: This is a prospective study of 48 patients with Abdominal TB who were
admitted to Kuwait University hospital in Sana'a-Yemen between Jan 2002-Dec
2004.fourteen patients (29%) were treated medically with Anti TB drugs.Thirty
four patients (71%) required surgical Intervention for diagnosis and treatment.
Results : Thirty two patients (67%) were female ,16 patients ( 33%) were male with a ratio of 2:1 .Fifty percent of patients were in age group 20-40.The most common symptom was Anorexia (94%) abdominal pain (92%) fever (90%).The most common signs were Abdominal mass ,ascitis and abdominal tenderness.Smeares and culture of ascitis fluid were negative for A.F.B. . Out of the 34 patients who required surgical treatment ;17 patients (50%) had Tuberculous peritonitis,32% had tuberculosis of intestine, and 17%had tubeculous mesenteric lymphadenitis.Complication rate was 50%,and mortality was 9%.
Conclusions: Diagnosis of Abdominal TB should be suspected in patients of abdominal pain with vague clinical presentation coming from endemic areas.not all patients present with ascitis and whene ascitis is present smears and culture are usually negative for A.F.B. Laparoscopy has its limitation Surgery should be avoided unless complication occur and should be conservative.Tube drains can be used with no fear of TB Sinus.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the effect of local irrigation with tranexamic acid in minimizing post–operativebleeding following the removal of impacted lower wisdom teeth. Materials and Methods: This clinicaltrial was conducted at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery / College of Dentistry / Universityof Mosul. The sample recruited comprised twenty healthy subjects who required surgical removalof clinically as well as radiographically evident impacted lower wisdom teeth. The sample wassubdivided into two groups of ten subjects each. The first group which is the control group included tensubjects where after removal of the tooth, local irrigation of socket was carried out with normal saline.The second group which is the trial group comprised ten subjects also, but in which tranexamic acid(injectable solution) in diluted form was used for local irrigation of socket. Both solutions were of equalamount. Estimation of amount of blood loss immediately following surgery was the criterion for comparisonand was based on weight of gauze used before and after application over extraction socket. Results:The results showed a statistically significant decrease in the amount of blood loss in the trialgroup when compared with the control group. Conclusions: Tranexamic acid as commercially availableor freshly prepared oral rinse may be used as an aid for the reduction or prevention of postoperativebleeding following the removal of third molars in healthy subjects as well as in patients with bleedingproblems.

Abstract

Background: One of the major complications of colonic resections is anastomotic leak that may convert in some cases into permanent faecal fistula, presented with discharge of faecal material from the site of the wound or drain.Objective: To know the incidence of faecal fistula after colonic surgery, and to analyse the associated factors that enhance or reduce its formation and its recurrence. Method: A prospective study of one hundred and thirty seven patients who were undergone colonic surgery in the period from Jan.1996 to Jun.2005. Those patients were followed up for at least one month after the operation of the anastomosis of the colon. The operations were done for different pathologies or lesions. All of the operations in this study were elective with bowel preparation, while 126 patients (92%) had previous colostomy because of an urgent operation in the past.Results: It had been found that the majority of the operations on the colon were closure of the colostomy (92%), especially that due to missile injuries (75.5%). Anastomotic leak appeared in 14 cases (10.2%) of the total operations, ten of them closed spontaneously with conservative treatment and the remaining 4 cases (2.9% of the total) transformed into faecal fistulae. All of these fistulae were in the patients originally injured by high energy missiles. Re-operation for those four patients, after bowel preparation, included excision of the fistula with resection of the affected segment of the colon and reanastomosis. The fistula disappeared in three of them but recurred in the fourth.Conclusions: Although mortality reduced markedly in elective colonic operation, by the modern surgery, faecal fistula still remains a challenge to the surgeons. Bowel preparation, prophylactic antibiotics, good vascularity of the ends of the colon, proper approximation of the ends of the colon without tension, delicate suturing, prevention of perioperative hypotension, and good nutrition of the patient; all are prophylactic measures against formation of the fistula. Once the fistula was formed, then simple suture closure of the fistula alone is not beneficial, preferably resection of the affected segment of the colon is indicated.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:Cardiac surgery can either induce acute renal failure or improve GFR by improving the cardiac performance. Acute renal shutdown (urine output <0.5ml/kg/hr.) is an uncommon but fatal complication which occurs in cases of insufficient cardiac function and may be accompanied with multi-organ failure. Acute renal failure (ARF) after open heart valve surgery occurs in about 8% of adult cardiac surgical patients with some preoperative renal impairment and in about 3-4% of patients with normal preoperative renal function test. This study was done to determine the frequency of acute renal shutdown after valvular open heart surgery and to detect any suggestive risk factors.METHODS:90 patients undergoing valve replacement (mitral and/ or aortic) were prospectively evaluated in three time periods: before, 24 hours after surgery and 48 hours after surgery. The association between preoperative, intra-operative and postoperative variables and the development of ARF was assessed thoroughly.RESULTS:Of the 90 consecutive patients 3 (3.49%) patients developed acute renal failure (serum creatinine>2.5 mg/dl) and 16 (18.6%) patients developed acute renal dysfunction (serum creatinine 1.6-2.4 mg/dl). The risk factors that were noted in the development of ARF were age, raised preoperative blood urea and creatinine, low cardiac output state, diabetes mellitus, oligurea, total cross clamp time total CPB time, and significant hypotension during the procedure or during intensive care unit (ICU) stay. Mortality rate for established ARF was extremely poor (50 %).CONCLUSION:Avoidance of this dangerous outcome looks better than trying to treat once it is fully established.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare between Primary and secondary closure techniques after removal of impacted third molars. This comparison was carried out according to the pain and swelling parameter. One hundred patients with impacted third molars were randomly divided into two groups (50 patients in each group). Periapical radiographs were taken for each patient to determine the degree of eruption and angulations of third molars. After surgical extraction in Group I, the socket was closed by hermetical suturing of the flap while in Group II; a 5–6 mm wedge of mucosa adjacent to the second molar was removed to obtain secondary healing. Swelling and pain were evaluated for 7 days after surgery with the VAS scale. The statistical analysis (analysis of variance for repeated measures, P < 0.05) showed that pain was greater in GI, although it decreased over time similarly in the two groups (P=0.003, F=2.6613). Swelling was significantly worse in Group I (P < 0.0001, F=38.395). In Group I, dehiscence of the mucosa was present in 15% of patients at day 7, and 1% showed signs of re-infection with suppurative alveolitis at 30 days. Pain and swelling were less severe with secondary healing than with primary healing.
